Please join us for lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory on J Street in downtown Sacramento as distinguished Professor Dr. Jonathan D. Canick, Ph.D. discusses the neuropsychological approach to capacity! Capacity is a critical issue in estate planning because many clients are elderly persons who are vulnerable to elder financial abuse and undue influence due to their diminishing cognition. Dr. Canick's teachings can help estate planners be aware of and prepare for their clients' potential vulnerabilities.
Dr. Canick's 40-minute presentation will be followed by a five-minute question-and-answer session conducted between Dr. Canick and audience members. From there, experienced estate litigation attorney Dave C. Jones of Hackard Law, will present a 15-minute lecture on how Dr. Canick's approach can be applied to the drafting and executing of estate plans that are better able to withstand or prevent lack of capacity and/or undue influence challenges.

DAVE C. JONES is an experienced trial attorney and litigator who is fortunate to be a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer's College. He began his practice of law as a deputy public defender in Tulare County where he gained trial experience quickly. He moved back to Sacramento to be closer to family. In Sacramento, he transitioned into general civil litigation, handling cases including landlord/tenant disputes, contract disputes, real estate fraud, and criminal appeals. Eventually, Mr. Jones reconnected with attorney Michael Hackard (who he has known for 19 years) and started focusing on estate litigation with Hackard Law. Through the depositions he has taken of estate planning attorneys and his experience challenging wills and trusts in courts throughout California, he has a real-world view of what it takes to draft an iron-clad estate plan that will withstand (or prevent) a challenge based on undue influence or lack of capacity.
This event has been organized with estate planners in mind, and is targeted toward those professionals.
